Kohring's lawyer Browne wants light sentence
Vic Kohring's lawyer, John Henry Browne, is trying to submit an affidavit from a remorseful juror that now claims that most of what the government called bribes didn't seem corrupt to him.
Browne's angle is to get a lighter sentence for Kohring.Kohring, a former Alaska state legislator, was convicted of bribery, conspiracy and attempted extortion.
The juror, Phillip Fritsch, says the jury based all of it's decisions only on the $1000 that Bill Allen handed to Kohring on tape at the Baranof Hotel in Juneau (See Below).
The motion (PDF)Browne says he will recommend a "split sentence". Around 6 to 8 months in a federal detention center, and then up to 18 months of some sort of house arrest.
Kohring is scheduled to be sentenced May 8.
